• All outside business such as bills and income taxes must be taken care of BEFORE entering the program. This also includes any DOCTOR or DENTAL appointments. You will not be able to take care of outside business once entering Teen Challenge, nor will you be able to make telephone calls for business purposes unless specified by Director. We suggest that, if you have any OUTSTANDING DEBT, you notify your creditors that you are being admitted into a long-term residential program and will make restitution upon completion. It is our past experience with creditors that they will be happy to wait, because late payment is better than no payment. With your permission, they are more than welcome to contact this office for verification.

• If you have medical problems that require frequent attention from a doctor, you must have these things taken care of before entering Teen Challenge. Teen Challenge staff is not equipped to transport you for personal needs.

• Teen Challenge allows no narcotic, mood-altering, mind-altering, or psychotropic drugs while in the program. If you foresee a problem, we suggest that you withdraw before coming to Teen Challenge.

• You must bring a picture ID, social security card, and copy of your birth certificate.
